Prime Business Dining is touting the slogan "Redefining Your Lunchbox." Some offerings will be hand-rolled sushi, house-roasted deli meats, authentic charcuterie and more. There will be one dining station that will feature Asian "home cooking" and another devoted to Mediterranean fare like quick pizzas. Each food destination will have a "culinarian" to give food expertise, healthy eating options and to handle special requests.
"After conducting a competitive bid process that included large international companies, I am pleased to announce a local New York firm, Prime Business Dining, has won the bid to provide dining services at our new Fab 8 facility," said Norm Armour, vice president and general manager of Fab 8. "As it's been said, 'an army marches on its stomach' and we're excited to be expanding our relationship with Angelo Mazzone and his team to serve our growing army of dedicated, talented employees as well as our customers from all over the world."
This isn't the first time a partnership has formed between GloFo and Mazzone. Prime Business Dining has run The Foundry since February 2010. It's a temporary dining facility located in the Fab 8 construction site and provides fresh meals and service to the construction team.
"I really feel GlobalFoundries and that whole project in Malta is the next coming of the Capital District. It's bringing so many jobs just at GlobalFoundries and then subsidiaries all around, they're talking about 20,000 or 30,000 people coming into the area," said Mazzone.
The Foundry will continue operating after the permanent dining facility is built to service ongoing construction projects at the campus.
